According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) , approximately one person dies every 19 minutes from a prescription drug overdose in the United States. Not surprising considering the fact that we live in a nation where the abuse of prescription drugs has taken an all time high. Pair this with the fact that it usually doesn’t take more than a simple complaint of an ailment to your doctor (or even an ER/Urgent Care doctor who isn’t familiar with you at all) to leave out with a prescription for painkillers in hand. While the FDA has made a push to better regulate these drugs such as hydrocodone the problem is still a major issue. This could, in my opinion, be directly correlated to the fact that the global prescription drug market is a highly profitable industry. It is, in fact, predicted to reach $900 billion by 2015.
The most alarming fact of all of this is the lacks of education patients receive in regards to alternative ways of controlling their pain. This is something that Adrienne Taylor, a mother of 2, knows all too well. An accident in 2009 left Adrienne with an injured back, surgery, and a slew of painkillers to control her pain. Adrienne soon realized that spending her days under the influence of painkillers just wasn’t an option. As a hands-on mother of two active young boys, the painkillers caused a drastic reduction in the quality of life she was able to enjoy.
While most of us would accept this (and likely end up on anti-depressants as a result) Adrienne, who holds a degree in social work, knew there had to be a different solution. This led her to researching, and ultimately participating in, the healing method of hypnosis. Hypnotherapy aids the patient in reprogramming their brain’s neurological receptors, allowing for pain management. The method can be used to treat medical conditions, clinical issues, addiction, provide sports enhancement, and much more. Much like physical therapy, during hypnotherapy sessions the patient is taught techniques to practice on their own, outside of therapy. This is known as self-hypnosis.
Today, Adrienne enjoys helping her patients in the calming, soothing atmosphere of her Grandview , MO office. Taking what she learned and developed a passion for and creating a business around it has allowed her to become the owner of Taylor Counseling & Hypnosis. As a solution-focused therapist, her goal is “to help you uncover your true potential and live a life that is worth living.
Adrienne’s advice to aspiring entrepreneurs: “If there is something that you have always wanted to do, begin today. My biggest fear was that I would die with that song still left in my heart, unsung.” Adrienne’s signature phrase is to “Live on Purpose”.
